I received a phone call on Friday morning from my good friend Janet with the most unexpected news ever. Janet told me I had won not just once but twice in Harrogate, I had been out all day Thursday and must have missed the call from the exhibitors. I was in a complete state of shock. I still did not believe it until I was actually there yesterday and saw it with my own eyes, I won first in the theme category and first in the cot quilt category. I am amazed that the judges really liked my quilts and deemed them as winners. I had a fabulous day, as always, at the show yesterday with my friends Janet, Sue and Emma as well as catching up with other friends near and far. An added bonus when we got there we discovered that Sue was awarded third place in the theme. We are so pleased for her as her quilt "African Dream" was simply stunning. Today I am going back to the show to the award ceremony with my sister and my daughter. Sadly Colin is unable to take time off but he is so happy for me. It is a lovely thing that has happened and the fact that I have been able to share it with friends and family is so wonderful.I am truly truly blessed.
